Draxx was a short and skinny space pirate who was a member of Lord Starkill's Ravagers gang. At some point in the past he killed his own family, although Starkill later claimed that they were all terrible people who deserved it. After Starkill returned to the the Ravagers' asteroid base hideout after a mission on Gaia, they were attacked by the rival Zeta Flight gang led by Starkill's nemesis Corporal Carol Danvers. The Ravagers fought back and restrained the intruders, after which Lord Starkill thought of selling his nemesis and her crew to Thanos in order to clear his own name. However the rest of the Ravagers found his plan extremely dangerous and foolhardy. The Zetas have grown tired of their leader Danvers acting weirdly as well and so the two group sided together in a shared mutiny against their captains, deciding to deliver both of them to Titan.
Upon landing on Titan, they were taken by Thanos to the Court of Galactic Justice. Thanos found the lives of two criminals incapable of redemption worth nothing to hand over in exchange until Rockette revealed the Reality Stone taken from Lord Starkill. Thanos then ordered every pirate seized and announced his intention to use the Stone to rid of the galaxy of all who pirate and pillage like they do. Upon hearing that, the pirates attacked Thanos' forces, helping their captains espace and also robbing the treasury on their way back to the ship.
